Hi! I’m Erica Crawford-Terry. Allow me begin by telling you that your presence here makes me feel so blessed. I hope that you find tools and resources that will empower you to achieve goals and live a life that you love. That’s exactly what Focus. Implement. Triumph! has done for me. Let me share with you my story…
Like so many people, I found myself stuck for 15 years in a field that wasn’t bringing me joy or the life I desired.
In 2003, I began my career in education as a teacher. I loved my students, but the demands of grading papers, planning lessons and getting my students to ‘pass the test,’ didn’t seem to be worth it for the low pay that I was receiving ($35,000/year with a master’s degree).
So, I followed societies rules, went back to school to earn another degree and eventually became a school counselor.
After becoming a counselor, I still was not completely happy with my career, so I went back to school (again!), this time earning a certification in educational leadership.
With this new degree in hand, I landed a district level administration job. I thought surely working at the district level would be the answer to my prayers, right? Guess again! I had never been so wrong in my life.
My job as an education administrator was more stressful than anything I could have ever imagined. After a few years, I left that job and took a significant pay cut to work as an educational consultant and coach.
The pay sucked, but it was stress free so that gave me a sigh of relief. It was actually a huge sigh of relief until I got my first paycheck. All of those degrees (and accompanying student loans) left me making less money than I had made in the 10 years prior.
As bad as the pay was, taking those few steps back was the best decision that I could have ever made.
God was setting me up for a major blessing and I didn’t even realize it at the time.
Like an arrow, I was being pulling waaayyyy back, but when my arrow was released, it propelled my life to places and levels higher and further than I could have ever imagined.
Even though I didn’t realize it at the time, my low paying, stress free job was exactly where I needed to be. It allowed me to relax and clear my mind and as I did, something strange began to happen.
I started to dream.
Not only did I begin to dream, but I had time to actually begin putting my dreams into action and BAM!!!
Just like that, my blog Focus. Implement. Triumph! came to life.
My prayer for God to enlarge my territory had been answered and it was far beyond my wildest imagination.
